RALEIGH MALL, as it was configured in its final stage of existence. The 353,300 square foot shopping venue was bested by CROSSROADS MALL (in 1981) and CRANBERRY CROSSING / BECKLEY GALLERIA (in 2005). It had a destiny date with a wrecking ball in July 2011.


A parting shot of the RALEIGH MALL that was. The inline store section of the center was knocked down, leaving its three anchor boxes intact.

In a circa-2013 site plan, we see the "new & improved" layout of the shopping hub. Its mallway section has been demolished. Remaining anchor store structures have been given new facades, with two freestanding restaurants built.
